Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta EXTRA VOLUME VII. LETHBRIDGE. .ALBERTA. TUESDAY, JULY 7, 19H NUMBER 174 Oil Indication in Sweet Grass Country are Now Sure of Development DR. GROSSMAN IS VERV If the predictions, pf eminent geolo- gists come. the southern portion of this province .will, -within a very brief space, be the centre of the cal- cium. Numerous conjectures and guesses have been made with reference to the L'outts-Sweel Gratis oM fields, located Bonie months ago.by Ira E. Segur, and now. the scene of some of the'liveliest development work. It is a well known fact, that within days half .a dozen drills 'will ;be at work along the anticline which-Is known to exist in that Mr. Segur's own faith In the section is demonstrated by the fact: that'he is the first man to place R drill on the ground southeast of this city. 'The Calgary-Sweet Grass concern have which they will develop at an eaily date. The. Boun- dary Oil Products will soon have sold enough stock to exploit their holdings iu 1-12. _'A Montreal syndicate is re- ported as making preparations to drill, Nearly every day the south train car- ries one or more men who are well 'known as oil experts, to this field. All who have returned are most opti- mistic'of the prospects offered. The latest word on the Coutts field comes from Dr.. Gustsv -Grossmann, PhD., one of the best known mining engineers and geologists in Canada. Dr. (jfbssmann, returned last night from where Jie had .been Bent by monied men, and his report, though altogether favorable; states'that there .Is every Jndica- somewhere .in the depths.V'The antioline1 said'tbdHihV tortile .north vicinity'.of township 1 range 12 is a reality. Dr. Grossman found it, and he also found several fossils. The anticline is some- what narrower, he says, than has been reported, but there is ample cause for penetrating it in the search for oil. Dr. Grossman was accompanied on his trip by A. C. Baalim, II. K. Lind- say and J. L. Man'waring, of Calgary, He would not divulge the names of the clients who had sent him south, but as much as promised that results ivoutd follow his trip. W. MoKnlght of Coalings, Cal., also In Die-field, and returned last night. E. P. Howard of the Segur-Howard interests, is now on the ground with another geologist, U S. Kempher, and 'will not return for a day or so. The latest development news comes from Spokane. Tlie field is "only four hundred miles from Spokane." and the Spokesman-Review, in its Sunday Is- sue, stated that it was due for some attention from-Spokane capitalists. The field Is generally looked upon as in the same general oil belt that is claimed by the geologists to 'extend from northern ..Alberta through the United States into .Mexico, Another encouraging sign, as pointed out in the Spokesman-Review, is the fact that Scgur looks for oil at a much leas depth than in the Calgary region, and that the indications are that a heavy oil will be found, entirely different from the light paraffin base product of the fields further north. That the Held Is being recognized hy-Influential Spokane men is attest- ed to b'y the following, under a heavy headline in the Sunday Spokesman- Review: Spokane Men Interested Local men also are Interested in the Sweet Grass country, Walter Nicholla and his associates recently acquired 1280 acres in.

Welsh responded, but the Am- erican covered up well, and the round ended in his favor. ROUND S Tne work of Goth fighters thus far had been very constant and sharp.

Ritchie smartened up and landed two straight rights on the face and a sharp uppercut. The American forc- ed the fighting all through the round, welsh slowing up considerably. It was a good round, all In favor of Ritchis. ROUND 14 The American got in a short hot left to the body. Later he repeated with the right. The fighting was fast and fierce to the end of the round. This, like the preceding, was Ritchie's round. ROUND 15 The first half of the round was a hugging', match, with both men work- ing1 hard in the clinches, Welsh trying to wear his opponent down.

(Referee is Eugene Hands Out Some Plain Unvar- nished Facts About the City's Finances DISCOUNT BYLAW MUST BE PASSED Mayor Hardie is sore. The chief guardian of the city's money bags is (downright peeved, ruffled and riled, all because of the pusilanimous, pitiful, lamentable manner in which the discount bylaw was assassinated by the ratepayers, and the way in which the city lost the assessment appeal. The (irst calamity will have an of re-curring, for the mayor is determined that the bylaw shall be submitted again and again, uiuil it is passed. In regard to the latter, -Mayor Hardie thinks It unfortunate. Not so-' much because iUr.' AVilson had his as-' sessment reduced, but because the; rest of the ratepayers must stand the burden.
